Sprouts Day Two

Morgan napping on the porch today taking a break.

She has been doing a lot of barking today and yesterday.

Guess she is tired out from all the excitement.

Second day of the lentil sprouting experiment. I put a paper napkin on top because the lid doesn't close all the way.

I rinsed the lentils twice today with the filtered water. The water does get mirky in between rinsing. I did a little more reading and evidently the rinsing is important to keep the sprouts from molding.

Duh... I could have figured that out when I saw the mold. So, I need to rinse for a good reason, not just to keep the water looking clear and sparkly. OK

Little Messy Missy asked for a close up photo of my egg basket. So, here is a link to a picture (My egg basket when the chickens were young and laying lots of eggs.) Those were the days!

It is going to be in the 60's tomorrow! I can see myself actually getting something done outside. I'm very glad there will be some warm weather.

Country Mouse
I suppose we have mice around here,
but this is the only time I have seen one or any evidence.
Maybe we have sneaky mice?

I still have and use the Photo Drop widget. I found it originally at Apple dashboard widgets but I don't see it there anymore. I suppose if you really wanted it you could find it on the internet somewhere. I'm afraid to download stuff from sites I don't know. 

(4 eggs today)

Hi Callie,

If you lost an application, it is easy to find. Open your Macintosh HD icon (double-click on it) then select Applications and the icon you're looking for should be there, then drag it down to your tool bar and hold it between two icons for a few seconds, the icons will make room for the new one, then drop it and hey presto you're back in business.
Cheers, Bill

Thank you for the information!
I still have the Drop Me widget but that is good to know.

Wow, that egg rack is something else! That would be an accident waiting to happen around our house. Someone would bump into it and send it crashing to the floor.
Good luck with the sprout growing. I don't have the patience for doing it, so , I'll watch to see how yours do! Have a great week!

Morgan has a hard job; I can see where guarding chickens will just wear you out.
Callie, I don't know anything about the bedding for my peeps. After you told me about the newpaper, I found that infomation. I have been using newspaper for about six years. Got lucky, I guess, because they have been alright so far.
